    Post election violence is a revelation of human cruelty.
    The more the post election violenece in a country, the more the chance of the party to loose its power soon.

    Bangladesh Govt. should form a cell to watch and control the post election violenece as soon as possible.

    Love for all can change our lives.

    Come to form Bangladesh a developing country and education sysstem shall be modified. The education shall not be based on religius doctrine but shall be based on teaching tolerance.
